  • Athasi Stakes at the Curragh Key Race Trends - 2 May 2016

    Robmull on 27 Apr at 17:00

    The Canford Cliffs EBF Athasi Stakes is a Group 3 race for Fillies and Mares aged 3 years and older, which is run over 7 furlongs at the Curragh on Monday, 2 May 2016. With an average field size of 8 runners during the past decade, the Athasi Stakes often provides an interesting puzzle for punters to assess, with many of the participants making their seasonal debut. During the past decade, 4 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 2.50 points, whilst a further winner was sent off at 9/4, although there have been some surprise results with the remaining 5 winners starting at 9/1 x 2, 10/1, 25/1 and 33/1. Readers of my previous Key Race Trends blogs will be aware that I often concentrate on early closing races where the key trends for the race have been…

  • Kentucky Derby Key Race Trends - 7 May 2016

    Robmull on 26 Apr at 15:24

    The Kentucky Derby is scheduled to be run on Saturday, 7 May 2016 over 1 mile and 2 furlongs on dirt at Churchill Downs, in the state of Kentucky, USA. This Grade 1 race for 3yos is also known as ‘The run for the Roses’ and is the first leg of the US Triple Crown, which is completed by the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico and the Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park. With an average field size of over 19 runners during the past decade, over what we in Britain would class as a tight oval track of approximately 1 mile in circumference the Kentucky Derby often presents an interesting puzzle for punters to assess. During the past decade, 5 market leaders have obliged for a LSP of 13.20 pts (based on US pair mutual dividends), whilst a further 2 winners have…

  • Eurovision 2016 - OLBG Preview

    botev1921 on 01 May at 16:34

    For third consecutive year I will be covering the Eurovision Song Contest in a separate blog as the event is generating a lot of interest on the OLBG forum with hundreds of people interested in the various markets it offers. Last time I teamed up with Donal Eurovision, who has been exceptionally active on the forum at this time of year with some valuable information and interesting comments about the contest, including market movements, different poll analyses and Youtube views. He is joining me again in 2016 with his projected best songs and a value pick that is not very popular on the market. The structure is as simple as possible, both Donal and I have come up with our individual top 10s without knowing what the other has in mind and by combining them, we could possibly offer some consensus…

  • Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Football Teams?

    LustForLeith on 26 Apr at 22:59

    Should You Avoid Betting Against Relegated Teams? It’s that time of the season when things can go a bit wrong. Nerves get to players and managers, mistakes get made and results don’t quite go to plan. One thing I’ve often wondered about is if a team is already relegated from a league, are they more likely to cause an upset? The team in question have nothing to play for but pride. There’s a chance that they’re at the bottom end of the table due to not being good enough (or maybe if they’ve received some sort of points deduction!) What you also need to consider is will the team they’ll be playing relax a bit and think that all they need to do is simply show up to get a result and in doing so underestimate their opponents? It’s…

  • Stanley Cup Playoffs Second Round Betting Tips

    Epic on 27 Apr at 17:48

    After a couple of predictable years, the Stanley Cup playoffs started with many surprises this Spring. For the first time in 10 years, none of the Original Six teams made it into the 2nd round. Also for the first time since 2011, we'll have a Cup winner that isn't the Chicago Blackhawks or the LA Kings. Picked 3 of 4 1st round series winners correct in the East, but could end up picking every series winner wrong in the West if the Anaheim Ducks don't manage to win Game 7 tonight. But I'm hopeful that the 2nd round results will be much better. EASTERN CONFERENCE TAMPA BAY LIGHTNING VS NEW YORK ISLANDERS The Islanders ruined the chance of two Florida teams meetings in the playoffs, which would've been a very special occasion. They beat the Florida Panthers 4-2 with three games needing overtime. It's…
